[Mono-list] DirectoryServices class

To add to this...

Now that the class status for head 2.x is back up I've look there too,
there is NO REFERENCE to the CommitChanges() method under
System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry at all.

What's the deal with this?

I can modify the DirectoryEntry, but I can't write it to the server...
I don't want to use the Novell.Ldap class functions, because I want the
portability between Mono and the MS .Net runtime...

Is there any way to get this going?
Is it not implemented yet?
